Malt Fascination (85)

Even with this being only three years old, there’s some full on sherry happening on the nose. Dried fruits with a slightly bitter note of almonds on top of the dates and prunes. Strangely, I’m not picking up a lot of smoky notes, which should be there. There is a bit of a green and ever so slightly acidic note here too.

For a 55% whisky at only 3 years old it’s not overly intense to begin with. However, after a couple of seconds there’s quite a lot of white pepper and sawdust coming up. There’s some dryness that holds the middle between oak, barley, dried fruits and almonds.

The finish is slightly flat, with a more one-dimensional sherry flavor. It’s still obviously sherry, nothing really stands out except for that peppery dryness and oak.

It’s a tad more complex than I anticipated, although the sherry really pushes the peaty notes back. I really had to remind myself that this was a peated whisky, just to not forgot about that.

So it is a rather tasty dram that, for a three year old, is nothing to scoff at. It shows promise, but I do think they pushed the sherry a little bit too far.
